*** Title:&br; Mesoscale Modeling of Functionalized Nanocarriers: Thermodynamic and Hydrodynamic Perspective [#f23c81fa]

*** ''Abstract'' [#m3f7e8ce]
Targeted nanocarrier drug delivery holds promise for personalized medicine, but its optimization requires an accurate description of the interaction of the nanocarrier with cells mediated by receptor-ligand interactions and subject to hydrodynamic regimes. We will describe our computational approach
for modeling protein-mediated attachment of functionalized nanocarriers as
well as the energy landscapes and hydrodynamic interations in nanocarrier
binding to cell surfaces. The method consists of employing flat histogram
methods for defining the free energy landscape, and fluctuating
hydrodynamics for quantifying the hydrodynamic interactions. From a
biological standpoint, we describe the importance of accounting for the
rotational entropy loss upon binding and the effect of flexure and bond
fluctuations in receptor-ligand interactions in the accurate prediction of
binding affinities of nanocarriers to cells.
